    Unlock database (MS 2003)

    ok i'm in the middle of designing this database. this afternoon i was trying to do something that i will do when i finish the whole project. i went tool, start-up and uncheck 4 things: display database window, display status bar, allow built-in toolbars and allow toolbar/menu changes. i knew by doing that i wont able to go back into design or editing mode next time i open it. and it did, i couldnt go back to editing or design mode. so the question i have is how do i go back to editing mode where i can see my Tools option and continue to design my project. i thought i remembered how to do it but i forgot the second key. i knew that if i wanted to go back to the editing mode i must hold down Ctrl and one more key then double clicks on the database icon to unlock it.

    Hold down Shift when you open the database to bypass the startup options.
